Borussia Dortmund have made an approach to sign Liverpool attacker Harry Wilson before the window shuts, Football Insider understands.

The in-demand winger, 22, is the subject of strong interest from Premier League, upper Championship, Spanish, German and Italian clubs on the back of his impressive loan season at Derby County.

A Liverpool source has told Football Insider that Bundesliga giants Dortmund are eager to test Liverpool’s resolve to keep Wilson and have registered their interest in landing him permanently.

This comes after Football Insider revealed last week that Newcastle and Aston Villa are both exploring late-window moves for Wilson, who scored 18 goals for Derby in 2018-19 and was instrumental in a campaign that ended in play-off final heartache.

He is valued at £25million by Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp making is clear at the weekend that it is now too late in the summer for Wilson and his youthful Anfield teammate Ryan Kent to go out on loan again.

The left footed 22-year-old has featured for Liverpool in their pre-season friendlies, but is likely to find himself down the pecking order when the club’s international stars return ahead of the new campaign.


Wilson is understood to be keen to be playing regular first-team football next season and is expected to push for a late-window transfer.

The Wales international is open to a move overseas and would be interested in taking the increasingly well-trodden path by British youngsters to Germany.

In other Liverpool news, it can be REVEALED that the club want to blow Leeds out of the water to sign a defender who has got their scouts drooling.
